Suncoast Arts Fest is produced by Fine Arts of the Suncoast, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to its mission to develop a community culture that embraces the arts. The organization is organized exclusively for charitable and promotional purposes with three key goals.
2017 will mark the twelfth year for Suncoast Arts Fest, which will once again take place in the quaint town center environment of The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. This upscale shopping venue is conveniently located just north of Tampa off I-75. A winding, cobblestone main street edged with trees provides the perfect strolling venue for art lovers to browse through tents filled with extraordinary fine arts and crafts.
One of Tampa Bay’s most popular festivals, weekend crowds of up to 100,000 visitors have traveled to The Shops at Wiregrass to enjoy the festival activities, which features over 125 fine arts and craftsmen from around the country, live entertainment, street painting and emerging artists exhibitions, free art projects for the kids and more.
The Fine Arts of the Suncoast believes strongly in the educational benefits of an arts-rich education and created Suncoast Arts Fest twelve years ago to help elevate the arts in Pasco County. Not only does the festival provide the public with free access to fine artists and craftsmen from around the country, but it raises valuable resources to support arts education in area schools.
Since the festival’s inception, Suncoast Arts Fest has raised $85,000 and benefited over 15,000 children and teens through its Classroom Grant Program, which provides special project support for visual and performing arts projects in public, charter or private schools in Pasco County.
All festival proceeds are donated back to the community through the Arts for Kids mini-grant program, which provides funding for fine and performing arts projects in Pasco schools. You can help us meet our goals by making a tax deductible contribution to Fine Arts of the Suncoast.
